Queen Noor celebrates UWC opening

Queen Noor of Jordan celebrated, with 120 young people from 68 nations, the establishment of the first United World College in Latin America, located in Santa Ana, west of San Jose, Costa Rica, Tuesday, March 20, 2007.

One of 12 of its kind around the world, the school is dedicated to training leaders for peace. In her inauguration speech, Queen Noor said that in a world under siege by conflict, violence, and environmental disaster, more and more colleges that dedicate to peace, protection of the environment and cultural tolerance are necessary.
